Abstract

The Global Observatory for eHealth (GOe), is an important initiative established in 2005 by the World Health Organization (WHO), designed to provide countries with strategic information and guidance on effective, practices, policies and standards in eHealth. The second eHealth survey was conducted in 2009 where Sri Lanka too participated. This short report is based on the findings of the GOe Survey for Sri Lanka. The second GOe survey had seven sections. The survey was completed with contributions from identified stakeholders of eHealth in Sri Lanka.

The foundation for e-Sri Lanka is led by Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) of Sri Lanka. The country has favourable foundation and organization support to introduce eHealth activities. Many organizations and individuals has designed and implemented eHealth related activities but the efforts lack central coordination.
